Thanks for the kind words. I had great pitching, great catching, and the fortune to have nothing whatsoever controversial or "weird" happen in the game, not that we wouldn't have been ready had there been.

At some point, I'll have to watch the video. I told myself I'd wait a while, but knowing me it will be later today. :)

I was amped up the first half inning and told myself over and over that inning to "slow down, slow down." After the top of the first I really didn't have to tell myself that anymore - it became just another game -- as much as it could, that is.

I have about 30 games to look at from the various regionals thanks to my DVR and to ESPN3. And I can root on Indiana and Nebraska next week at the LLWS. My baseball season ended with this game on Friday.

This is a quick screen cap I grabbed to use on Facebook.

The throat protector was something I never worried about until a friend took one in the throat in June -- and his voice still isn't the same. This protector is amazing -- it may look a bit goofy, but it's something that I forget I'm wearing and it never catches on the shirt or protector or anything else.
